Hi Friends

As someone who loves travelling, I was happy to see that a travel contest was organized by TRListe after a long time. I wanted to write my post about my weekend trip-activity in this weekend to participate in the TRListe Travel Contest. Thus, not only I participated in the contest with a recent post, but also shared a post in the TRListe community again after a long time. The award is not important to me, the important thing is to participate, I wish good luck to everyone ­čśë

Merhaba Arkada┼člar

Gezmeyi seven biri olarak, TRListe taraf─▒ndan uzun bir aradan sonra bir gezi yar─▒┼čmas─▒n─▒n d├╝zenlendi─čini g├Ârmek beni mutlu etti. Bu haftasonu ger├žekle┼čtirdi─čim gezi-aktivite ile ilgili yaz─▒m─▒, TRListe Gezi Yar─▒┼čmas─▒na kat─▒lmak i├žin yazmak istedim. B├Âylece, hem g├╝ncel bir yaz─▒ ile yar─▒┼čmaya kat─▒lm─▒┼č oldum hem de uzun bir ardan sonra TRListe toplulu─čunda tekrar yaz─▒ payla┼čm─▒┼č oldum. ├ľd├╝l benim i├žin ├Ânemli de─čil, ├Ânemli olan kat─▒lmak, herkese ba┼čar─▒lar dilerim ­čśë

Although we have reached the end of October and the middle of the autumn season, we still have summer-like days in Istanbul. I take advantage of such beautiful days and continue my weekend activities after the ban on entering forest areas in Istanbul was lifted. This year, however, I didn't have much opportunity for a weekend activity compared to last year. In this post, I will write about the trip and barbecue we had nearby Ozan Creek, which passes through B─▒├žk─▒dere Village in ┼×ile district of Istanbul.

Ekim ay─▒n─▒n sonuna ve sonbahar mevsiminin ortas─▒na gelmemize kar┼č─▒n ─░stanbulÔÇÖda yazdan kalma g├╝nler ya┼čan─▒yor. IstanbulÔÇÖda ormanl─▒k alanlara giri┼či yasa─č─▒n─▒n kalkmas─▒yla birlikte b├Âyle g├╝zel havalar─▒ f─▒rsat bilip haftasonu faaliyetlerime devam ediyorum. Zaten bu sene, ge├žen seneye g├Âre haftasonu gezisi i├žin ├žok da f─▒rsat─▒m olmad─▒. Bu yaz─▒mda, ─░stanbulÔÇÖun ┼×ile il├žesinde bulunan B─▒├žk─▒dere K├Ây├╝ÔÇÖnden ge├žen Ozan DeresiÔÇÖde yan─▒nda yapt─▒─č─▒m─▒z gezi ve mangaldan bahsedece─čim.

The last time we went to Ozan Creek and the forest area where it is located was more than a year ago. Since the ban on entering forest areas was lifted, my friend and I made our plans during the week. Esenceli Village and Ozan Creek are our two favorite places. Although both of them are closer to each other, we preferred to go to Esenceli Village recently. My friend and I agreed that it was time to go to Ozan Creek.

Ozan DeresiÔÇÖne ve onun bulundu─ču ormanl─▒k alana en son bir y─▒ldan uzun bir s├╝re ├Ânce gitmi┼čtik. Ormanl─▒k alanlara giri┼či yasa─č─▒ da haz─▒r kalkm─▒┼čken, arkada┼č─▒mla hafta i├žinden plan─▒m─▒z─▒ yapt─▒k. Esenceli K├Ây├╝ ile Ozan Deresi bizim iki favori yerimiz. ─░kisi de birbirine daha yak─▒n olmas─▒na kar┼č─▒n son zamanlarda biz a─č─▒rl─▒kl─▒ Esenceli K├Ây├╝ÔÇÖne gitmeyi tercih etmi┼čtik. Arkada┼č─▒mla art─▒k Ozan DeresiÔÇÖne gitmenin zaman─▒ geldi─či konusunda hem fikirdik.

We met on Saturday afternoon and first took things such as chairs, table and samovar from my friend's house. Then, we bought the things needed for the barbecue from the market and set out as two friends towards Ozan Creek. We reached the forest area and the creek after a total of one and a half hours. At first glance, we thought there was no one there, but we saw people barbecuing and even camping deeper into the forest and near the creek. After parking the car and finding a suitable place near the creek, we put things and settled down. Since the weather was a bit windy, the forest area was slightly cooler. Fortunately, the wind stopped after half an hour.

Cumartesi g├╝n├╝ ├Â─čleden sonra bulu┼čup ├Ânce arkada┼č─▒m─▒n evinden sandalye, masa, semaver gibi e┼čyalar─▒ ald─▒k. Sonra mangal i├žin gerekli olan malzemeleri marketten al─▒p Ozan DeresiÔÇÖne do─čru iki arkada┼č yola ├ž─▒kt─▒k. Toplamda bir bu├žuk saatlik bir s├╝renin ard─▒ndan ormanl─▒k alana ve dereye varm─▒┼čt─▒k. ─░lk bak─▒┼čta sanki kimse yokmu┼č gibi d├╝┼č├╝nd├╝k ama orman─▒n derinli─čine ve dere kenar─▒na do─čru insanlar─▒n mangal, hatta kamp yapt─▒─č─▒n─▒ g├Ârd├╝k. Arabay─▒ park edip dere kenar─▒na yak─▒n uygun bir yer bulduktan sonra e┼čyalar─▒m─▒z─▒ koyup yerle┼čtik. Hava biraz r├╝zgarl─▒ olmas─▒ nedeniyle ormanl─▒k alan hafiften serindi. Neyse ki, r├╝zgar yar─▒m saat sonra durdu.

We missed Ozan Creek. Here, you can drive approximately 100 meters into the forest where the creek flows. If we had come a little earlier, we could have sat in a better place by the creek. There are also places where you can put chairs and tables in the creek. Entrance is free, there are no facilities. This is also a place used for TV series shootings. After placing the things, my friend quickly lit the samovar. So, I cut the wood for the barbecue and lit the fire. We were very hungry. After having a barbecue and eating fill, we enjoyed dessert with one-hour brewed samovar tea and chatted. Later, I walked around and took some photos.

Ozan DeresiÔÇÖni ├Âzlemi┼čtik. Burada arabayla derenin akt─▒─č─▒ orman─▒n i├žine yak┼čal─▒k 100 metre kadar gidilebiliyor. Biraz daha erken gelseydik dere kenar─▒nda daha g├╝zel bir yere oturabilirdik. Derenin i├žine sandalye ve masa koyabilece─činiz yerler de var. Giri┼č ├╝cretsiz, herhangi bir tesis yok. Buras─▒ ayr─▒ca dizi ├žekimlerinde de kullan─▒lan bir yer. E┼čyalar─▒ yerle┼čtirdikten sonra arkada┼č─▒m hemen semaveri yakt─▒. Ben de mangal i├žin odunlar─▒ kesip mangal ate┼čini yakt─▒m. ─░yice ac─▒km─▒┼čt─▒k. Mangal─▒ yap─▒p karn─▒m─▒z─▒ doyurduktan sonra bir saat demlenmi┼č semaver ├žay─▒ ile tatl─▒ keyfi yapt─▒k, sohbet ettik. Ben daha sonra etraf─▒ dolara┼čak birka├ž foto─čraf ├žektim.

Meanwhile, even though it was late, there were still people coming here. Some looked around and took a breath of fresh air; some had a short picnic and left. The campers also dispersed to different parts of the forest to collect firewood. The weather became cooler towards sunset. My friend brewed another tea in the samovar. We drank some more tea to warm up, and to satisfy our longing, we sat in the forest nearby the creek until it got dark until 7 o'clock.

Bu arada, saating ge├ž olmas─▒na kar┼č─▒n hala buraya gelen insanlar vard─▒. Kimisi etrafa bak─▒p temiz hava al─▒p gitti; kimisi ise k─▒sa s├╝reli piknik yap─▒p gitti. Kamp├ž─▒lar da odun toplamak i├žin orman─▒n farkl─▒ yerlerine da─č─▒lm─▒┼čt─▒. G├╝n bat─▒m─▒na do─čru hava serinlemi┼čti. Arkada┼č─▒m semaverde bir ├žay daha demlemi┼čti. Is─▒nmak i├žin biraz daha ├žay i├žtik, iyice ├Âzlem gidermek i├žin hava karanana kadar ormanda derenin kenar─▒nda saat 7ÔÇÖye kadar oturduk.

If the weather remains this good in the coming weeks, we want to continue our weekend trip&activity in November as well. All photos in this post belong to me. Thank you for reading.

E─čer havalar ├Ân├╝m├╝zdeki haftalarda da b├Âyle iyi olursa, haftasonu gezi faaliyetlerine Kas─▒m ay─▒nda da devam etmek istiyoruz. Bu yaz─▒daki t├╝m foto─čraflar bana aittir. Okudu─čunuz i├žin te┼čekk├╝r ederim.
